Citizen Stone

Allan Stone,
art dealer and collector,
died at 74 on Friday,
Dec. 15, 2006.

From his obituary in
New York Times:

“Sometimes jokingly referred to as ‘Citizen Stone’ after Orson Welles’s outsize film character, Mr. Stone was attracted to formal density and flamboyance. He was associated with the rise of the junk aesthetic and with realist painters whose canvases bristled with paint and details.” –Roberta Smith

The Log24 entry for the date of Stone’s death, titled “Putting the X in Xmas,” suggests the following picture as a memorial:

The image “http://www.log24.com/log/pix06B/061219-X.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Though not bristling
with paint, the picture
is, in a sense, realistic.

It should be noted of the
obituary by Roberta Smith

“This is the exact opposite
of what echthroi do in
their X-ing or un-naming.”
